Reference the Border Patrol Weekly Blotter:

"...A reduction in staffing and an increased workload at Border
Patrol Headquarters has required discontinuing numerous activities
including the U.S. Border Patrol Weekly Blotter. The Blotter was not
part of our reporting metrics and was produced based on available
production resources. Those resources are no longer available."

DEL RIO - A Del Rio woman was taken into custody Tuesday after U.S.
Customs and Border Protection officers found a long-range sniper
rifle, along with components of other rifles, in her vehicle.

Around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, CBP officers observing outbound traffic
headed for Mexico inspected a 1999 Ford Expedition driven by a 24-
year-old Del Rio woman, accompanied by her one-year-old daughter.
During an examination using a non-intrusive imaging system, CBP
officers discovered a non-factory compartment inside the vehicle.
Officers recovered a .50-caliber Barrett Model 82A1 rifle from the
compartment. Also found in the compartment were two Barrett Model
82A1 lower receiver assemblies and four matching ammunition
magazines, and a .38-caliber handgun.

The driver was turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations while her child was
released to Child Protective Services.

"One of the key goals of CBP is to disrupt the business of
transnational criminal organizations," said Michael Perez, CBP Port
Director, Del Rio. "These rifles are high-powered sniper weapons that
have no purpose other than armed combat.
"We are committed to preventing the illegal importation and
exportation of firearms."

Tuesday's seizure came two weeks after CBP officers at Del Rio
discovered eight assault rifles and more than 600 rounds of
ammunition hidden in a vehicle bound for Mexico.

Note: The drug/narco culture takes hold of the "ninis" kids with
no job, no school. Numbers also tilted because of various massacres
of youths at parties and rehab centers. Usually by other youths
being paid with drugs by the cartels.

Firearm homicides, over half of deaths in young
